The WSET Level 2 course is a beginner to intermediate level qualification course. This course is suitable for those working in the industry or for wine and spirit enthusiasts. This qualification explores major grape varieties and the important wine regions in which they are grown. You’ll learn about the styles of wines produced from these grapes as well as key classifications and labelling terminology.
The following topics will be taught in the 3-day course “WSET Level 2 – Award in Wines”:
– How wine is made
– What factors influence wine style
– The key white and red grape varieties and their characteristics
– The important wine-producing regions of the world
– The production of sparkling, sweet, and fortified wines
– Label terminology
– Food and wine pairing basic principles during the lunch
– How to create simple tasting notes
This course concludes with an exam consisting of 50 multiple-choice questions, which takes place directly after the last seminar on the last day of the course.
Upon successful completion you will receive a WSET certificate and lapel pin and you will be able to use the associated WSET certified logo.
Each participant will receive a workbook, a “Study Guide” + sample exam questions and, upon passing the exam, the WSET® certificate from London.
There are no entry requirements for this course. You must have reached the minimum age for drinking alcohol in order to participate in the tasting of alcoholic beverages but this is no obstacle for obtaining the qualification.
